State Representative Márquez Responds to the El Paso County Democratic Party Press Release
EL PASO, TX - It is unfortunate that the local Democratic party chose to issue a press release questioning Rep. Gonzalez' and my democratic credentials.
I am and will remain a proud Democrat.
My legislative priorities and voting record support this statement. I choose to focus on issues important to the community as a whole and not a vocal few.
While the local Democratic Party has chosen to focus on dismantling the unity our delegation has built, my office and I will continue our fight for school board transparency, women's health program funding, the creation of an independent Health Science Center at Texas Tech and moving UTEP towards Tier One status.
I took an oath to uphold the Constitution and to serve my community to the best of my ability and will continue to do so.
